WHITE MAN'S BURDEN

Stylised in the form of a prose poem, sometimes sentimental, sometimes elegiac, this is the story of one woman's fight against prejudice -- ""America's great denial of her dream""- as she saw discrimination for the first time back home in Howard, Kansas, when a Negro was denied admission to a church college- and as she went on to teach in mission schools in the South and was often impotent in the face of barriers, taboos. Personal pleading for a larger cause, which carries emotion and sincerity, but I question if a presentation of this type will reach a general market.
